Hello fellow grease heads, it’s been a while since I’ve done a review, but here we go. I heard about this pomade from the best group on Facebook, Addicted to Pomade. And I find out about every pomade I buy, and damn, are there some amazing pomades out there. These pomades I speak of are made by homebrewers, which means they brew their own pomade at home (duh!) Anyway, this pomade is made by Mike Moose Brooks and damn, did he really hit it out of the ballpark with this pomade, it is damn near the perfect heavy pomade. I mean, just look at that design! It’s awesome!
It comes in a 4 ounce flat tin, and it has a design of what seems to be a skeleton with a pomp playing Blackjack, hence the name of the pomade, Blackjack Doubledown. The ingredients of the pomade are on the bottom of the tin, and are really simple ingredients, Petroleum, Microcrystalline Wax and Scent. How the heck is the pomade so great with only 3 simple ingredients?!
When you open it, you see this whiteish, clearish pomade, with a magnificent scent of a manly cologne powder. The scent reminds me of a stronger Clubman aftershave, I really love the scent.
Scooping it out was really surprising, it scooped out surprisingly easy for a heavy, like way easier than any wax pomade I ever tried. I really love the consistency of this pomade, I wish there was more pomades with the same texture of this pomade. It spread a bit tough like most waxbased pomade, but it straigthened my hair like a champ! And man, was that manly scent strong in my hair! And it had a nice medium shine to it!
A super heavy pomade, with a shine! As a said before, hit it out of the ballpark. And the best part is..IT’S HEATPROOF! I was out today in 80-90 degree weather today, and it held all day, and the scent stayed strong. I definitely recommend this pomade, it is in my top five favorite pomades. I give it a 9.5 out of 10, because it feels that the tin is too small, and I NEED MOAR.
Well ’til next time guys..
